The Pirates will send out their struggling offense, defense and pitching for another try at Oakland. Trevor Williams will hope for support from . . . somebody. The A’s will counter with Chris Bassitt, a 30-year-old journeyman with a career 4.45 ERA in AAA who’s been outstanding in two starts for Oakland since being called up.
